Boris warns on referendum

Boris warns on referendum
Boris Johnson has warned against an 'in out' referendum for Britain on the European Union.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live, the London Mayor declared against British people deciding whether or not to quit the EU, despite having signed the People's Pledge, which campaigns in favour of the 'in out' vote.

“Suppose Britain voted tomorrow to come out, what would happen in real terms... the entire delegation would remain in in Brussels," he said.

"We’d still have huge numbers of staff trying to monitor what was going on in the community, only we wouldn't be able to sit in the Council of Ministers – we wouldn't have any vote at all. I don’t think that’s a prospect that’s likely to appeal...

"With great respect to the in outers, I don't think it does boil down to such a simple question."

Speaking on the same programme, Foreign Office minister David Lidington said: "I think Boris was talking good sense."
